Works Bell Rapfix QRS Detachable Steering Wheel Quick Release
The Rapfix QRS - Works Bell's brand new quick release system
Released in August 2009, The Rapfix QRS is the latest steering wheel quick release system from Works Bell.
Like all Works Bell's other world class high quality quick releases, the Rapfix QRS is manufactured in Japan with true Japanese machining precision.
The Rapfix QRS consists of two parts as shown above:
- the steering plate which you attach to your steering wheel
- the Rapfix QRS body which is attached to your steering boss kit.
It is possible to propagate the operation to radical direction by corresponding the overhung steel balls with the four holes in the steering plate. Furthermore, the three steel balls grip to the middle and lock the steering plate firmly by operating the directions of Rapfix QRS’ cover called “roller & ball lock system” (patent pending). Therefore, the operation to thrust direction is done perfectly.
Two foldable levers are designed to make the turning of the cover simple. It is also a safety device because the cover cannot be turned without moving the lever.
Your horn still works
The electrode installed in the plate and Rapfix QRS body, when aligned together in the “attached” position allows full operation of the horn button.
The electrical connections for the horn in the Rapfix QRS automatically engage when the steering wheel is attached.
We are one of only two authorised Works Bell exclusive national distributors worldwide outside of Japan.
Our ex-tax pricing is equivalent to the price that this product sells for in Japan where it is made. So by purchasing from us you get true Japanese market pricing, without the cost of an plane ticket to Tokyo !
For some other companies, it is near impossible to achieve the goal of designing a quick release that features easy operation with no shakiness or play.
However, the Works Bell Rapfix QRS achieves these goals by utilizing the lever, cover and ball lock system.
In addition, it allows the driver to maintain a comfortable seating position due to it’s very compact low profile design with a thickness of just approx 25mm (1 inch) !

Steering Wheel & Hub / Boss Kit Compatibility
There is no welding required to fit a Works Bell Rapfix QRS Quick Release to your car - it is strictly a bolt on product with no welding required.
Steering Wheel Compatibility
At the steering wheel end, the Rapfix QRS ships pre-machined with bolt holes in both standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm), and 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern (PCD 74mm), so it is compatible with a very wide range of steering wheels from a number of manufacturers including Works Bell, Momo, Nardi, Personal, OMP etc.
Of course it is compatible with all Works Bell steering wheels, including the Works Bell Original Steering Wheel, the Works Bell Team Orange Steering Wheel, and the Works Bell Yoshioka Steering Wheel.
Boss Kit / Hub Compatibility
The part of the Rapfix QRS that attaches to the steering boss / hub has a 6 bolt (PCD 70mm) bolt pattern, the same bolt pattern as used on Momo steering bosses / hubs.
Alternatively, if you already have a 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern steering boss / hub (PCD 74mm), then the part of the Rapfix QRS that attaches to the steering boss / hub can be attached to many compatible 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern steering bosses / hubs, by using the Works Bell Conversion Spacer.
The conversion spacer is a very useful product which allows you to fit compatible Momo bolt pattern products to Nardi bolt pattern products and vice versa.

Rapfix QRS has cleared the NAPAC standard (a standard for after market products in Japan).
A screwing test was done to check the operation of steering wheel to radial power. There was not any change in the shape after being tested with live loads of 29.7kg.m (291N.m).
Moreover, there was not any change in the shape after a bending test of dead loads of 19.8kg.m (194N.m) in order to examine the effect when a driver impacts the steering wheel in an accident.
In the screwing test, there were no damages when a load of 45kg.m (441N.m) was done; and in the bending test, there were no damages when a 28kg.m (274N.m) load is done.
